How many of you have the Senn HD600?

the actual 600, not the 6xx.

how often do you find yourself using it? what kind of music do you listen to?

I still have mine, love it on a tube, just awesome


Mine gets the least amount of use of all my headphones, because I actually like hearing bass. When I do use them, it is on my tube amp.

what kind of music do you listen to on it?

I had it and i wish i had never gotten rid of it. especially since i didnt have a chance to try it on tubes. damn


They were my daily drivers for years on a hybrid tube…
until I got the Nighthawk Carbons :open_mouth:

what kind of music did you listen to on them? listen to on the Carbons?

I listen to most things, but tend to gravitate towards acoustic/vocals. I am enjoying the extra sound stage, detail-retrieval, and warmth that I get from the carbons vs. the 600. EDM is also more fun with these.
I tend to go back to the 600 when I listen to classical

I listen to mostly Classic Rock and Metal…but I am a bassist and drummer, so lack of low end pisses me off.

well, if their low end is anything like the 599se, I’ll be fine…it does orchestral nicely. I just want better… :wink:

Are you shopping for the 600s?

yes. got a couple feelers out for two used in Canada for $275ish…or new for $400.

Without a doubt, they are nice headphones and handle classical wonderfully. Let’s just say that I have sold every other pair of headphones except my 600s and now my Carbons, if that means anything.

I see on your profile that you don’t have a DAC or an amp, but I would say it may be a helpful purchase as well if you decide to go this route.

yes…I am targeting the Geshelli Labs ENOG2 and ARCHE2.5 Pro and then a tube amp, of course. :wink:

It is nothing like the 599…low end doesn’t exist on HD 600

Sidebar: which of the 6(insert letters or numbers here) is the widest?

Most likely the 650 on a wide tube amp, it depends on the amp. On solid state the 660s is the widest imo

58x vocals are killing me right now… I’ll have to move up this range eventually

650 with a tube amp (I use the DarkVoice which I fitz modded with a Ken Rad VT-231 Black Glass and an RCA JAN-CRC 6AS7g.

It’s hard sometimes not to go full steam ahead into this hobby (even moreso than I already have)… that darkvoice must be a beauty… seems very popular
